During the 1600's and 1700's Pennsylvania had a high influx of European people looking to establish their own communities with all of the much desired freedom and rights that were denied to them in their own countries. William Penn, who owned the Province Of Pennsylvania, which later became the State of Pennsylvania, allowed all of the people who settled there freedom of religious practice.
Walnut was a much used wood type in years past for hope chests since it was so readily available. Now, this wood type can be fairly expensive for fully aged wood furniture. This has put Cherry and Oak in high demand. These hardwoods are easier to find in quality plank pieces which have been kiln dried. This is a much quicker way to 'age' wood. It can easily take a year or more to 'age' wood in the normal fashion.
Another benefit of these chests is found in the fact that you can purchase these practical, durable and smartly designed storage units for a most reasonable cost. You do not have to spend an arm and a leg obtaining the kind of storage unit you need to your valued intimate clothing items. Affordability really is one of the true hallmarks of lingerie chests as opposed to many other costly furniture items that can eat up a home dcor budget in no time at all.
This purity in form has resulted in one of the most beloved and enduring forms of furniture and hope chest styles, not only in America, but around the world. The Shaker Style has a timeless appeal with its simple line form which is not just simple, but is elegant as well.The simple staining brings out the beauty of the wood grain and the joinery styles. This furniture style represents the Shaker ideals of harmony and order within every aspect of their lives. This influenced the Shaker community to improve upon every design to achieve the form with the purest style. By creating all things surrounding them to be of the highest efficiency, the Shakers would then have more time to pursue religious endeavors.
